November Lunch Club Experience

Submitted By Holly Scully on Tue 19 Dec 2017

This month’s Lunch Club took a more relaxed vibe as the team headed to the Hilton for high tea @ Café Cino and then a 90 min spa package of their choice at Alysium Day Spa.

For going above and beyond during the month, the AMAZING Jen Roberts was the VIP for the day and she enjoyed an extra-long spa treatment as well as some other little treats to take home.

 

Here’s what the team had to say about their experience:

 

Geoff: 4 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

The High-Tea was delicious and what Englishman doesn’t love a scone. However, the location really let itself down. We were offered a seat in the middle of the hotel lobby, which was a bit loud and not very relaxing.

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

I was floating like Peter Pan. Really enjoyed spending the quality time with the team in a different setting not necessarily involving alcohol. I had a (long-overdue) full-body massage and almost all of my little niggles were worked out. As a runner I really should do these more often!

What was your top highlight from the day:

The company for the day  – 5 / 5

 

Adam: 5 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

Great start to the afternoon tucking into some naughty scones and cakes along with a glass of champers.  

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

Top afternoon spent unwinding after the stresses of the week. Started off with a 90min massage which pretty much sent me to sleep it was that good. Came out of there bit groggy but decided to hit the gym whilst we wait on the ladies to have their treatments done. Smashed a decent enough session that we needed to relax again so headed to the pool for couple laps before chillin in the jacuzzi and steamroom. Came out of the Hilton feeling brand new!

What was your top highlight from the day:

Has to be the massage, 90mins went by so quickly.

 

Kim: 4.5 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

High Tea was lovely I thoroughly enjoyed the sandwiches in particular ( easily pleased) the setting was a bit odd for High Tea as we were almost in the foyer but still enjoyed the experience.

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

We then moved onto the spa and that was so chilled, we started with jacuzzi, steam room and sauna then I had a coconut body scrub followed by a facial.

What was your top highlight from the day:

I literally floated home afterwards to a much needed relaxing Friday evening!

 

Holly: 4 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

I found the high tea a little disappointing. I was expecting nice white table clothes, fancy tea pots etc….. but when we arrived our booked table was not set and they tried to pull some tables together for us in what seemed like the main walkway. It took a good 15mins for us to be finally seated at a set table. We started with a glass of bubbles, so the stress of the arrival and lack of ‘fancy pants’ atmosphere washed away quickly.

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

I loved the day spa. Being full-time working mum (of a nearly 3 year old) means I don’t get a lot of time to myself. So to have a 90min pamper session was heavenly.

We started with a spa, sauna, steam, jump in the pool circuit which we repeated several times. Then I headed off for my facial and body scrub. It was bliss!

What was your top highlight from the day:

Seeing the gents embrace the day with us, they rocked their robes and slippers!

 

Jen: 5 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

The high tea was lovely but it was more of a café vibe rather than a traditional tea room. The food and bubbles were a delight but it is not your traditional high tea room setting if that is what you are expecting.

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

Fabulous! We started the experience with a cold glass of bubbles followed by more bubbles of a warmer variety in the jacuzzi!

Then back into the spa for our treatments, I opted for the massage and facial package. Recruitment can be a very stressful job and the treatments and overall experience of the day melted away any recruitment woes! Thanks TRC and to my team for getting us all there!

What was your top highlight from the day:

It was all top notch and the day was thoroughly enjoyed.  

 

Rita: 5 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

I really liked the food. The scones were my favourite!!

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

I spent 1 hour in the sauna room first and it was well spent. I was so refreshed afterwards. Then a massaged followed and it relieved my tired muscles and helped me get through a tough training session at the Gym the following day.

What was your top highlight from the day:

The highlight for me was the massage!

 

Chels: 4.5 out of 5

Describe your High Tea experience at Café Cino:

I wasn’t feeling the best on the day so the high-tea wasn’t amazing for me, but it was nice sitting with everyone and catching up.

Describe your experience at the Day Spa:

The massage was amazing and I went home and slept for 15 hours afterwards. It was nice to be able to chill with the ladies in the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room and have a sober lunch club experience. A lovely day with fab people 😊

What was your top highlight from the day:

The massage!!!!
